A couple hours ago we heard Phish metaphorically dress up as Little Feat for a full covers set. Well now we have another Halloween treat: Grace Potter, who actually dressed up as Dolly Parton for “Jolene.” As you can see in the image above, the entire band went old-school country. From left, that’s Billy Ray Cyrus, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings.

Potter’s “Jolene” is significantly more tempered than the White Stripes’ version, but then again, what isn’t? As we saw in our Live Collection a while back though, this quintet can take on just about anything. Watch/download “Jolene” below, then head here to snag dozens more GP&N covers.
